Small Businesses Lose Millions Due To Not Securely Backing Up Data

Do You Think Your Data Is At Risk?A key factor behind people and businesses deciding to not securely backup their data is misunderstanding what makes their data valuable. On the weekend I saw another tragic example of how this common assumption hurts so many people and businesses (see photo). It’s sad to see another person has been hurt by a malicious act, but it’s also frustrating. Only after being robbed has someone realised it wasn’t their device they had to worry about – it’s the priceless photos they may never get back. What do you think their chances are of recovering them? Imagine how they’re feeling… and what they’d do differently given a second chance! PLEASE ACT: Despite numerous articles begging businesses to protect their data, small to medium businesses aren’t acting and now make up the biggest segment of businesses being hurt or destroyed by data theft. In May this year ACCC reported that, ‘Small businesses with fewer than 20 staff were most likely to be targeted by scammers and accounted for more than 75 per cent of reports to the ACCC. Businesses were most likely to be targeted with false billing scams (1819 reports) but investment, hacking and phishing scams also caused significant losses.’
Find Out Right Now How Much Your Data Is Worth To OthersYou don’t need to pay anything to do this. You don’t need to sign-up to some organisation or risk clicking an unknown link to find out what your data is worth. Just ask yourself these simple questions:
- If you lost any of your business data today – files, photos, financial data, client contact details, etc – what would YOU pay to get it back?
- How many days could your business operate if you lost all your financial records?
- Could your business survive the loss of reputation that comes with a data breach?
